Prof. Boudreaux has an interesting take in response to the NY Times coverage:
Gov. Eliot Spitzer says that his patronage of prostitutes is a "private matter" ("Spitzer Is Linked to Prostitution Ring," March 10). He’s correct; that matter is between himself and his family and is no one else’s business. I wish only that Mr. Spitzer understood that many of his most famous crusades – for example, against musical-recording companies aggressively marketing their products, against banks lending money to lower-income consumers, and, indeed, even against prostitution rings(!) – were crusades against behaviors that in each case is a "private matter."
If Mr. Spitzer wants us to butt out of his private affairs, he should from here on in set an example by butting out of everyone else’s private affairs.
Where are his wax wings in light of this news? Melted? Evaporated?
